No one can argue that Ipoh is definitely a dim sum haven. Come to our famous dim sum street on weekend and I wish good luck in finding a table. For locals, we go for lesser known ones but still good enough to satiate our tastebuds.
There is one which opened not too long ago, and good for me it is just nearby my house. We were there on a morning during CNY. Of course, we dare not put so much expectation on the food since this was our first visit.
Menu is displayed on the wall together with the price, make sure you know what you order. 😛
Nevertheless, despite the crowd, we managed to find a table near to the kitchen, which was a good thing as we could pick freshly steamed dim sum directly. Talk about efficiency here. It is an air-conditioned restaurant, you don’t have to sweat it out. 🙂
Surprisingly, majority of the dim sum were great. Honestly, due to the maddening crowd, we expected a drop in food quality but we were wrong.
We left feeling satisfied but most importantly, it wasn’t that expensive. What’s more, it was CNY and we kind of expecting 10% surcharge.
